Wave Systems Corp.






Network Security: How to Defend an Infinitely Expanding Frontier


Links to all Wave/TCG video

Updated Video Links

From Youtube's "Wave Systems" channel

Featuring Mr. Sprague, "Leveraging Hardware Security in 350 Million Platforms" gives viewers a brief overview of Trusted Computing, from the history behind the TCG, to an introduction of both the TPM and SED as embedded forms of hardware security, designed by the security and PC industry to counter the vulnerabilities of software security

The second video, "Trusted Computing: Establishing Device Identity" evaluates how TPMs act as the foundation for device identity, ensuring that only known machines are allowed network access. The TPM is a highly secure "container" for user and device keys, providing device identity much the same way as a SIM chip does on mobile phone networks.

The third video in the series, "Trusted Computing: Employing Hardware Encryption" introduces viewers to hardware-based disk encryption. Mr. Sprague addresses the impact of new legislation mandating encryption and points to performance differences between software and hardware full-disk encryption (FDE), along with deployment considerations.

In Trusted Computing: "Considerations for Deploying in the Enterprise" Wave Systems' President and CEO Steven Sprague argues that, for as powerful as Trusted Computing security is, to extract its true value, IT must have and use the right management tools. By turning on and managing the Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) on employee PCs, IT can add greater security to organizations' virtual private networks. With self-encrypting drives (SEDs), management software is needed to configure each drive, set security policies and perform event logging to prove encryption was turned on should a laptop become lost or stolen.

In "Trusted Computing: Deploying in a Mixed Environment" Mr. Sprague addresses a common question: How should we proceed when Trusted Computing security isn't on every PC in our enterprise?" Keys and certificates should be stored in TPMs wherever possible and selecting an SED should become standard practice for all new PC purchases. In the meantime, IT should evaluate the best transitional approaches, including deployment of Microsoft BitLocker to encrypt data.

There is a long history of the government becoming a first adopter and advocate for technology that serves the greater public good. Look no farther than the development of the Internet as proof. In "Trusted Computing: Government Adoption" Mr. Sprague illustrates how the government is again playing a leadership role, as evidenced by the Department of Defense mandate to include TPMs on all new laptops.

In the series finale "Trusted Computing: What the Future Looks Like" Mr. Sprague cites precedents of how the industry's decision to embed technology transformed the way we compute. Ethernet transformed networking; USB forever changed the perception of peripherals. The infrastructure is in place for the TPM to act as the subscriber management system for all Cloud and Web-based services.

Wave Systems has partnered with leading drive manufacturers Fujitsu, Samsung Semiconductor, Seagate Technology and Toshiba to offer the easiest-to-use and most
secure self-encrypting drive (SED) solutions available. These industry-standard, OPAL compliant SEDs protect data where it lives - on the hard drive, by taking advantage of its
closed environment to isolate data storage for stronger protection.

Further, Wave's support for leading Trusted Platform Module (TPM) vendors allows organizations to leverage the hardware root-of-trust in some 300 million installed TPMs
for both strong multi-factor user and machine authentication. Data security begins with knowing who and what are logged onto the network.

Wave's EMBASSY® Security Center:
A client application that enables extended security features and provides local management for both SEDs and TPMs. Initialization, pre-boot access control and
password management are just a few of the features available. Since Security Center ships factory installed from leading PC vendors, small and medium businesses can easily add hardware-based encryption and authentication out of the box.

Enterprise Management:
For a distributed network of SEDs and TPMs, Wave's EMBASSY® Remote Administration Server (ERAS) provides robust policy management of users, credentials and access rights from one central location. Through native integration with existing directory structures and policy distribution mechanisms, assigning users and policies can be performed within the directory framework - dramatically simplifying deployment.

Wave Systems Corp. will be providing a hands-on demonstration of its industry leading client and server solutions for self-encrypting drives and Trusted Platform Modules. The
TCG demonstration will cover centralized management of OPAL compliant self-encrypting drives including pre-boot access policies, password recovery and compliance reporting.Remote enablement, ownership and management of TPMs will also be highlighted.

The participant will experience:

• Enterprise SED initialization, management and advanced user authentication
• Drive password recovery
• TPM management through remote console

Wave Systems Corp. ( ) is playing a significant role in the new paradigm of hardware security for esktop computers that uses hardware chips to better integrate security within the new software security structure that Microsoft is building in cooperation with the Hardware promoters in the TCG.

Wave's current utility software is for protecting keys. Wave has spent the last 15 years building designs for better hardware to protect applets. It will play a significant role over the next decade in improving global network security, evolving solutions to the center and the edge of the network. This will provide easier use of PKI, authentication, attestation, digital signing, password protection and a myriad of web services. These services cannot be developed without the interoperable trusted technologies combining hardware and software security which Wave Systems has been developing since 1988.

Wave Systems Corp. is building the infrastructure and services to enable the deployment and management of trusted computing platforms. The services and infrastructure are designed to be flexible and deliver solutions within the framework of such industry initiatives as the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) ( ) and other security initiatives recently launched by Intel and Microsoft.

The TCG will develop and promote open industry standard specifications for trusted computing hardware building blocks and software interfaces across multiple platforms, including PC's, servers, PDA's, and digital phones. This will enable more secure data storage, online business practices, and online commerce transactions while protecting privacy and individual rights.
